It’s easy to pinpoint certain areas of the hospital where spending habits could be improved. Maybe there’s a different brand of consumables that could save you money, or perhaps you’re overstated in a department that isn’t generating enough revenue. There are other areas, however, that require a closer look. One of those is clinical engineering – sometimes called biomedical engineering, or even health care technology management. Unbeknownst to you, this department may be operating inefficiently, which can cost your hospital significantly, in terms of equipment downtime, preventative maintenance and repair costs, and even making equipment-purchasing decisions that don’t align with hospital goals.
